RE: [council] Proposed new rotation times for Council meetings in 2016
My Senior Manager, Dr. Lisa McGrady, would not allow me to participate on a
Thanksgiving Day call.
Although I do not observe Yom Kippur, I think it makes sense to avoid major
world holidays when they are known. All the other dates look OK to me.
Have a great weekend!

PS - I will not participate in a call on Yom Kippur.
I would prefer not to be on a call on Thanksgiving.
Therefore I prefer September 29 and December 1.
I am indifferent to the date of the other December call but probably preferable
on the 22nd to allow maximum passage of time from the prior call.
